March 20 Protest: Messages of hate from both sides of the aisle

These two photos demonstrate that ignorance is not exclusive to any one side.
By the same logic, while it's easy for many in the pro-Palestine camp to look on in disdain at the pro Israel activists, the fact is that there are good people across all ideologies...

both those guys suck. The 2nd one has been around forever, usually with Joe Webb, who has a similar getup. I think he's from Argentina and has some bitterness about something that happened there, but I'm not sure about his ideology. It's hard to know how to drive them away. I think they threaten to press charges for being attacked.
The first person has negative -100 karma points. My grandmother always referred to people needing to be taken down a notch. Hopefully they aren't involved in education or childrearing.

Josh, this is bad comparison. How can you compare a sign making fun of Tristan to a sign against a murderous State. I can't respect this kind of sloppy journalism.

I did not see the tiny part of the second sign that says, "it's the jews stupid" -- i do not support blaming 'the jews' but i do blame Israel, "the jewish state" -- that's a big difference!

This was a stupid post to begin with. Josh, what's your point with these crappy photos?

the 2nd photo is a random wingnut with an obviously hand-made sign. yes, his anti-semitism should be called out, but it's different from the first photo. the sign about tristan looks like multiple persons had a hand in crafting that sign, from the original artist to the printmaker who enlarged it to the woman who waved it. it's evidence of an entire community cruelly mocking the injury of a supporter of Palestine, and using a decent amount of economic privilege in order to do so (signs like that aren't cheap).

Who are you now, Josh, Ann Frank, for Pete's sake?

I guess there are good neocons, good zionists, good afrikaners, and so forth, huh?

What the fuck are you smokin' these days, Josh? This is your big angle to post on Indybay again?

Lets get confirmation from Josh. This sloppy piece of inflammatory posting seems atypical of Josh's past work. So let's hear from the real Josh Wolf.

If this really is your work, Josh, I would be terribly disappointed in you. But since this is free-posting Indymedia, Mis Information and disinformation are easy tactics for the white wing wackos.
